The point of an editorial is to preempt discussion, not stimulate it. You'll get a better reception for your ideas if you try to predict and counter every possible objection to your thesis in the article text, and then if someone does think of something to say, you appear and argue with him.

Statues wouldn't be better if they could move. Model airplanes would not be better if they were the same size as airplanes.
